May Have Been The Losing Side

Not convinced it wasn't the Viking one.

Results from a quiz:
Harald Hardrada (The vikings)

You would fight for Harald Hardrada, the King of Norway, who is sometimes known as the “last Viking ruler.” You believe ambition and strength are excellent leadership qualities, and you value a vision of expansion and growth. Unfortunately, Harald will not achieve the level of power you think he should. He will be defeated by Harold Godwinson at Stamford Bridge in September 1066.

Harald was perhaps the greatest Viking of them all. Sadly, I've somewhat lowered my estimation of him, since I've learned that much of his famous bloodiness, in domestic affairs, was designed to destroy indigenous democracy, and make himself a despot.

Snort.

You would fight for Harold Godwinson, the Earl of Wessex, who Edward the Confessor named his successor on his deathbed. You believe in law and order and following through on your word. You don’t take too kindly to rebellions and are prepared to fight for those you think should be in power. Unfortunately, Harold Godwinson will be defeated by William the Conqueror at the Battle of Hastings in October 1066.

I thought I would get Godwinson.

Godwinson for me, too.

I wouldn't have lost to the Norman, though.

Are there Shieldmaidens involved in this? I refuse to fight unless there are Shieldmaidens.

Godwinson for me, too.

Huh...

You would fight for Duke William, also known as William the Conqueror. You have a rebellious streak, and you admire a leader who is bold, larger than life and tireless in pursuing his goals. You believe William should rule England, and you picked the winning side. William will go on to defeat Harold Godwinson at the Battle of Hastings in October 1066, becoming King William, ruling until his death in 1087.
